I am so pleased to welcome you to the Grizzly Family and The University of Montana campus! I trust that your time here will be some of the most memorable in your life. You chose The University of Montana for all the incredible things we have to offer and I know you will take full advantage of those opportunities and excel on and off the field of competition.
As is expected of all Grizzly student-athletes, I ask you to give your best, especially in the classroom. Never forget that it is a privilege to wear "Montana" across your chest, and the entire Griz Nation will watch you with pride and enthusiasm as you grow and develop in the program. Represent yourself and your team with pride, integrity, and honor.
I look forward to the upcoming year and all the special moments we will experience in Grizzly Athletics. Enjoy your time with the program and take full advantage of everything UM has to offer.
Best wishes on a prosperous and successful career!
